Publisher's Summary

Playing for the highest stakes of all . . .
In the 1960s, four ambitious new MPs take their seats at Westminster. Over three decades they share the turbulent passions and upheavals of the race for power with their wives and families, men and women caught up in a dramatic game for the highest stakes of all. But only one man can gain the ultimate goal - the office of Prime Minister.

No solid plotline

Not my kind of story. the stort follows the life of several gentlemen and rambles on about the details of British politics. but I don't know where the author is heading.

Political heavy book

Good insight into political or kings but gets rather tedious at times. But you have to stay focused as there are a large amount of central charaxhters.

Insight into parliment

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Enjoyed the story built around three individuals all who want to go into politics . The story evolves telling the tale and including similar happening over the years in the national press. Contains it all tear jerking moments, humour, betrayal all within twists and turns making a griping tale. Could not wait to pick it up again.

A darned good yarn.....

A good story for those who like the cut and thrust of British political life.
some nearly true to life events intertwined with the author's vivid imagination and local knowledge keeps you wondering where it will go next.

Very enjoyable
